..I've been eye-ing up these balloon dies by MFT for a while now..
..I haven't convinced myself I need them enough yet so thought I'd have a go at making a balloon card without them & see how it went...
I used my circle dies to make balloons & added curled bakers twine - to make this I smothered the bakers twine in glossy accents, wrapped it around a pencil & left it to dry for a couple of hours & then carefully slipped it off the pencil..
I think it turned out pretty good & as I used quite a large circle die it filled an 8"x8" card..
What do you think?...Is it ok, or shall I buy the dies?!?!?..
